Many corporations are really hurting right now as people stay home, shops shut down, and normal life comes to a halt due to the spread of the novel coronavirus. However, people are finding a limited supply of sympathy for them, wondering why they spent their money on things like stock buybacks instead of saving up for a rainy day like they tend to admonish their lowest-paid workers to do.

It doesn’t help that some of these corporations are refusing to shut down shops and warehouses when they should, failing to implement appropriate sanitation protocols, and relying on their lowest-paid workers to keep things running under risk without giving them paid sick leave or hazard pay. This has resulted in multiple national strikes within companies like Amazon and Instacart.

Not to mention certain companies that have been nickel-and-diming their customers at every opportunity while making their planes increasingly uncomfortable and now suddenly they want us to bail them out. Many colleges and universities are also included, because they pretty much act like heartless corporations when it comes to their money.

If you’ve had it with corporate whining while actual human beings are dying, these tweets are for you:
